Honda enters the 2013 model-year season with a selection of hardworking utility ATV lines. “This first release for 2013 models includes an extensive lineup of Honda utility ATVs that offers plenty of options for just about every job you can dream up,” says said Powersports press manager Bill Savino. “Over the years our whole line of ATVs has established a well-deserved reputation for being ‘built to work’ and that notion applies whether you’re spending the day working hard or playing hard.”
The lineup of utility ATVs offers something for just about everybody who spends time outdoors for work or recreation, according to Kevin Aschenbach, off-road media coordinator. “Whether you’re out checking fences or just enjoying a casual trail ride with friends, Honda has your ATV needs covered,” he says.
Here is the Honda lineup:
FourTrax Rincon - Boasting features that include a powerful 675cc engine, independent rear suspension, electronic fuel injection, Hondamatic automatic transmission, front and rear disc brakes and more, the FourTrax Rincon tops Honda’s line of ATVs. This popular choice comes with a host of features that all come together to place the Rincon in a class of one. Availability: June
FourTrax Foreman Rubicon - The FourTrax Foreman Rubicon has gained a reputation for its off-road work. Its continuously variable Hondamatic automatic transmission with true engine braking has proven to be efficient, maintenance-free and rugged. This automatic transmission can be set in different modes for maximum performance or maximum torque, as well as in Electric Shift Program (ESP) mode that gives the rider push-button control. The model also includes a torque-sensitive front differential along with Honda’s TraxLok selectable 2WD/4WD system and the option of Electric Power Steering (EPS). Availability: June
FourTrax Foreman 4x4 - Honda’s FourTrax Foreman series of 4x4 ATVs will handle a day’s work and a day of fun-filled riding. Whether you choose a Foreman with manual transmission or ESP, this line of ATVs boasts a strong-running liquid-cooled 475cc single-cylinder OHV four-stroke engine that’s powerful enough for taking on a wide range of extra-tough jobs. The fuel injection system with a 36mm throttle body offers near-instant throttle response, consistent performance at high altitude, and hassle-free cold-weather starting. The rolling chassis features a rear suspension system incorporating a high-quality shock for comfort, precision and work capabilities. The Foreman also delivers agile handling and a tight turning radius. EPS is optional. Availability: June
FourTrax Rancher - Honda’s FourTrax Rancher series stands out in ATV shopping selections due to a variety of driveline variations: 2WD or 4WD, manual transmission, Honda’s ESP, or a fully automatic transmission. To power all of these models, the Rancher series utilizes a liquid-cooled 420cc engine with electronic fuel injection. There’s also the independent rear suspension plus the option of EPS in all these variations. Availability: May
FourTrax Recon - Since the inception of this classy mid-sized ATV, many riders have made the Honda FourTrax Recon a best seller. A 229cc OHV engine pumps out performance, while its middleweight size enhances its agile handling traits. With the option of a manual gearbox or Honda’s push-button ESP, the FourTrax Recon continues to get the job done seven days a week. Availability: July
Honda TRX90X - When it’s time to introduce riders to the world of ATVs, the TRX90X serves as the ideal starting point. While the TRX90X carries the same styling cues that place it right alongside its big brother sport ATVs, it also offers smooth power delivery and Honda’s renowned reliability. Factor in the ease of electric starting, Honda’s durable automatic clutch and a refined suspension system, and you have the perfect combination for launching a beginner off to a great start on a lifelong riding career.
